On today's show... we'll be talking about the cask night at Deks in Rocky Point. We had a cask of Oakham's Bishop's Farewell from England last Friday. It was a huge success. Largest turn out ever for a cask night at Deks. We're showing that cask conditioned ale does have a future on Long Island. We'll talk with Mike Voigt, a BJCP certified Beer Judge and brewer, and with Rich Thatcher, the President of the Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts. After that, the buzz. A quick run down of the craft beer available right now around the Island. We'll round out the show with a review of TJ Finley's in Bay Shore and I caught up with Drew Dvorkin, the owner of TJ Finley's this last weekend at the Brickhouse. We'll be talking to him.
But first let me tell you how to contact me. New url for the podcast: radiobeerhall.com. The old address still works and the feed url is still the same, but there's something about that dot com url that communicates a higher degree of seriousness -- and I am serious about craft beer. You can contact me at donavan at radio beer hall dot com.
